Scraps. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 27 March 1889

Scraps. Byron, in one'of his fits of generosity, ex claimed ' Roll on, thou. dark and deep blue ocean, roll !' and the ocean, taking advan tage of the privilege thus given, lias continued to roll on ever since. ' Riches take unto themselves wings and fly away,' said the teacher. ' What kind of riches is meant V And the smart boy at the foot of the class said he ' reckoned tliev must be ostriches.' An Irishman recently spoke of a man who had tried in every way, but couldn't commit suicide to save his life. The girl with plenty of money may be homely, but unless some one of her girl friends tells her she will never know it. When a man and woman discuss the sub ject of matrimony one seldom gets the better of the other. It usually results in a tie.

The Pope's Independence. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 27 March 1889

The Pope's Independence. The reports about the state of the Pope s health, and his having been found insensible on the floor of his chamber, are (says the Standard correspondent at Rome) exaggera tions. The facts are as follows : — After re ceiving many reports from abroad, setting forth the disinclination of the Powws to re open the Roman question, and the slight im pression produced bv the votes and addresses of Catholic congresses and bishops, the Pope called a meeting of certain Cardinals to con sider the question of the Pope's independence. The meeting was somewhat animated. The Pope exhibited considerable agitation, and put an abrupt end to the sitting, When about to rase, he seemed to stagger, and there was a moment of anxiety, but while being carried to his apartment the Pope came to himself and refused to be carried further. Some audiences were suspended, but they were subsequently resumed, as Leo XIII. appears to have returned to his usual state of health.

The Horrors of a Slave March. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 27 March 1889

7Th$ Horrors of a Slave Starch. The slaves having been captured are taken to the headquarters of the East Coast traders, where the yoke is made secure, and this is allowed to remain upon a slave night and day without being once taken off. The constant rubbing upon the neck chafes the skin, and gradually ugly wounds begin to fester under the burning sunshine. The men who appear the strongest, and whose escape is feared, .have their hands tied, and sometimes their .feet, in such fashion that walking becomes a torture to them, and on their necks are placed the terrible gorec or taming-stick. The yoke is a young tree with forked brunches. It is generally about 5ft. or fift. long, and from 3in. to 4in. in diameter. One which I examined a few days ago was about t ?, ': 281b. in weight, but I am told that refractory ulaves are often placed in yokes weighing 501b. or more. Through each prong of the fork a hole is bored for the reception of an iron pin, which, after the neck of the slave has...

The Russian Penal System. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 27 March 1889

The Russian Penal Svsteui. The Howard Association, from its London headquarters, calls attention to an exposure of cruelties practised upon Russian prisoners. These exposures were made by an American writer, Mr. George Kennan, in the Centubv Magazine. Many Russians resident in America have (says the Alta Califohnia) denied his charges, with a zealous regard for endorsement of his findings by the Howard : Association is a severe blow to the Russian penal system, since the members of that organisation move very carefully and are sure of their ground. They ask that the public opinion of the world be brought to bear to reform the method of transit adopted for Russian exiles, who are herded together, 'politicals' along with criminals.the stronger made to walk thousands of miles, and the weaker hauled, unsheltered, in havA-tmina wagons, through rain and frost. In Eastern Siberia, exiles who work iu the mines are permanently chained to their wheelbarrows day and night, an arrangement which...

Exodus of Chinese. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 27 March 1889

Exodus of Chinese Every China-bound steamer that leaves Sydney speaking generally, is the bearer away from these shores of a larger or smaller number of Chinese, who have no intention of returning, or of again leaving their naive land. They have saved a few hundred pounds, and that fact is sufficient for them to decide upon getting back to the country, the idea of dying outside of whose bounds they daily live in dread of. Added to that number there are others, who, in the existing state of laws here, can have but a very faint prospect of again setting foot upon Australia. It was estimated that of the 106 Chinese who left here by the Catterthun on Wed nesday last there were not more than 10 who had any such expectations. On Saturday the Tsinan carried off 92 Chinese 'passengers, and the per centage of the would-be re-visitors to Australia is hardly likely to exceed that of the Catterthun's. In these two steamers it will thus be seen tbe Chinese population of this country is diminishe...
